Don't give up that idea just yet until you get some estimates.

First any shop that says the car does not need to be stripped, burn rubber to get out of that place as they don't know vettes.

Also working on a vette is totally different then a metal car and you will find that the estimates from someone that knows how to do these cars are going to be eight grand and up on a good day.

Any less and I would be wanting to see customer vettes they did before.

This is why, the best deals you will find when buying a vette is one where someone gel-coated it or the car needs painting because it is usually a budget breaker to get fixed and done right, that is also why some shops will refuse to even give you an estimate and just say up front, we don't do vettes.
